refunding tuition feesWatch
I did receive the PGCE and QTS recommendation. However, at £3000 for an experience that really doesn't match what a ten week placement would have given and for freely available CPD online meant that I asked if we could have any of that money back/returned to student finance. Obviously this was declined by the head of department.
Something about this doesn't sit right with me. The debt accumulates interest. I know we may never pay it back but a lot of the cohort are at a massive disadvantage as it is. It doesn't make sense.
Have other people at other universities tried to get any money back and had any success? are there any nation wide movements happening? How can we make these businesses more accountable and not just able to swallow up money regardless of what they provide. I know life isn't fair etc but still...
Need more help on going postgrad?
If you can prove that the university did not deliver as promised in areas that were within their control then you kay have a case.
